Tabla and Sitar Concert with Basant and Sargam

153 Te Mata Rd, Havelock North

Come join us for an amazing musical evening at Havelock North High School.

The tabla is a pair of twin hand drums from the Indian subcontinent. Since the 18th century, tabla has been the principal percussion instrument in Hindustani classical music, where it may be played solo, as accompaniment with other instruments and vocals and as a part of larger ensembles. The playing technique is complex and involves extensive use of the fingers and palms in various configurations to create a wide variety of different sounds and rhythms, reflected in mnemonic syllables. Basant knows the art of connecting with the audiences. He is a master showman and a unique creator that has a style of it's own. Nothing can capture the essence melody and uniqueness of his style.

The sitar is a plucked stringed instrument, originating from the Indian subcontinent, used in Hindustani classical music. The instrument was invented in medieval India and flourished in the 16th and 17th centuries, arrived at its present form in the 18th-century India. Sargam has played with a number of talented musicians around New Zealand. You will be captured by her performance.

Door sales also available but we suggest pre-purchasing to be sure you don't miss out on this wonderful musical evening.
